Tenley has always counted musical theatre among her passions. She grew up singing, dancing, playing piano and performing on stage.

Tenley was honored to have performed with the Norman Leyden Singers with the Oregon Symphony for two seasons.
SECOND CHANCES is Tenley’s first musical. Always one to state her intentions, she hopes to inspire through its message that we are worthy human beings, capable of living lives filled with love, satisfaction and joy, and that we’ve all experienced the need for second chances in our lives. Tenley lives in Carlsbad, California with her husband and their eight-year-old son.
